* BadMoonRising: The moon gives people on Earth the creeps, because it's no longer just a big piece of rock in the sky, but an advanced nation of [[TheFairFolk Fae]] that “evolved” wfrom humans. Knowing a permanent fixture in your sky is home to a colony that can nuke you whenever they want is enough to scare anyone. The fact that they can also mind control you doesn't help much.

* EstablishingCharacterMoment: The book opens with Scarlet's introductory scene, in which she is so enraged by the authorities' lackluster investigation of her grandmother's disappearance that she hurls produce at the wall of the tavern she's supposed to be selling it to. She follows this almost immediately by reading the riot act to the tavern's patrons for their mockery of Cinder. These scenes thoroughly establish Scarlet to have a strong sense of justice and determination, an unusually open mind about cyborgs and Lunars, and a ''hell'' of a temper.



* FieryRedHead: Scarlet is introduced getting so mad she throws produce at the building she's supposed to be selling it to.

* RaisedByGrandparents: Scarlet, since she was seven.

* PostRapeTaunt: A near-miss, but the trope gets a nod when [[spoiler:Wolf's brother Ran]] mentions thinking about raping Scarlet in order to taunt Wolf about it afterwards. He claims he finds the idea of intercourse with a human too repugnant, however, so he decides to skip straight to killing her.
* RaisedByGrandparents: Scarlet, since Scarlet came to live with her grandmother when she was seven.

* KidsAreCruel: Helped along by FantasticRacism - apparently it's a fairly common practice for members of the Lunar nobility to keep captive Earthens for their children to practice their glamour on. [[spoiler:Scarlet]] spends some time this way after being abducted to Luna, and the little monster in question chiefly seems to enjoy tormenting her with visions of vermin [[BodyHorror invading her body]].
